  Papabile - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Papabile (plural: Papabili) is an unofficial Italian term first coined by Vaticanologists and now used internationally in many languages to describe cardinals of whom it is thought likely or possible that they will be elected pope.
For instance Carlo Maria Cardinal Martini was thought to be papabile a few years ago, but now he has given up his see (Milan) upon reaching 75 years of age.
As Pope Benedict XVI was one of the oldest men on the list, most men on the list remain among his potential successors, but the "papability" of those on it will tend to wane as time goes on.

Papabile remarks on a Whapping post on cassocks at ND, and offers some historical info, of which I was not at all aware...about what the Second and Thirdt Plenary Councils of Baltimore decreed in re/the garb.

After this unfortunate exercise, the people of Viterbo were happy to find a papabile by the name of Gregory X.
